ASL-CI

I’m so impress this video from YouTube. My CI friend sent me of this video from Facebook inbox. So, I can show to my hearing family and friends to proof it. My second cousin’s son is deaf with bilateral cochlear implants and don’t know sign language. His ENT doctor didn’t allowed him to learn sign language real early when he was baby. His mom refused to learn sign language. That is sad! She and her parent thought cochlear implant make me hearing person. She told to hearing girl, “Jessica used to be deaf and she is hearing with CI.” No, I am still deaf! When I get my cochlear implant off and still deaf! The CI make me hard of hearing but I am still deaf! CI is not make me ban the ASL. I still love ASL and hear with CI! I want to show you this video. You can see children with bilateral cochlear implants use ASL.

Usher Syndrome mother to be??

Many Deaf people tried to scare me to not get pregnancy. They said childbirth can cause my vision loss to get worse. I didn’t buy their stories. There is no proof of this. I have done research on the internet about Ushers Syndrome. This is not true that it affects the mother’s vision. That is no evidence. The devil wants to scare RP & US. I don’t believe that. I only trust God. I pray to God. I will not be blind after childbirth. I need my vision because I’m an artist and create jewelry. I love the beautiful colors!

I have a friend who has US like me. She asked me if would lose her vision during pregnancy and childbirth. I told her that’s not true. Other women are concerned about this. When my baby is with me. I will update my posts to let you know what’s going on. My friend asked me “Will your child be born deaf and US? No, my husband’s family have no deaf or blind. He does not carry the US gene. Both of my parents had to be carriers of the US gene. My husband’s DNA does not carry the US gene. My children will be carriers of the recessive genes. I believe my children will be hearing.

I found the article about usher syndrome mother. Usher’s Syndrome: Growing Up with a Deaf and Blind Mom A lady didn’t have hearing aids or cochlear implants. I did not want to be the same as her. I was concerned about not hearing my baby’s crying, cooing and other sounds. I could not hear with hearing aids. I thought I might know my baby crying with only a SA 101 Basic Remote Receiver with a light. I am not able to see the light when I am in the kitchen or bathroom. I did not want to trip over my small children because I can’t hear and not see well. My option was to get a cochlear implant so I would hear my baby’s crying, cooing and other sounds. I want to get a Graco imonitor Video Vibrating Baby Monitor or
Summer Infant Slim & Secure Handheld Video Monitor
. This is very important so I can know when my baby wakes up from nap.

My plan was to get cochlear implant before having children. It would be easy for me. God had a plan for me and my husband to have children after I received my implant. Thank god! I have a wonderful hearing husband. I don’t have to worry about not being able to hear anymore. It was gift from God.

Deaf and Blinds in the bible verse

Is 29:18

On that day the deaf will hear words of a book, And out of their gloom and darkness the eyes of the blind will see.
